"Romantic, suspenseful, and witty all at once--Alice in Wonderland meets Neverwhere."--Claudia Gray, New York Times bestselling author of the Evernight series
In Selkie's family, you don't celebrate birthdays. You don't talk about birthdays. And you never, ever reveal your birth date.
On Selkie's seventeenth birthday, Selkie finally understands why. All she wanted a simple "Happy Birthday" from her secret crush, Ben. But the instant she blurts out the truth, her whole world shatters.
Because the world she's known is only an elaborate enchantment designed to conceal the truth: Selkie is a half-faerie princess. And her mother wants her dead.
The faerie court believes Selkie is a child of prophecy--fated to destroy the court's powerful grip on the supernatural world. And the only way for Selkie to survive...is to prove them right.
